Ok I chose the sink method but did almost boiling hot water into the sink. The lavender turned out light in some spots and darker in others. Right now I'm doing pink.
I did dye some FOE and it turned out BEAUTIFUL! no lighter/darker spots. All the same color
I will keep experimenting with it. My Joanns is far so I ordered fushia online. Beats driving there. I will keep experimenting! Now to tie dye FOE. Yes, I have NEVER tie dyed anything in my life. Should be interesting!
Thanks for the link Vanitha!
